Do butterflies have sticky feet? I find it fascinating that they seem to like standing upside down, hanging from leaves.

This morning felt like it was a good time to feed my desire for color and warmth. It was still pretty nippy outside when I started driving to the west, heading for the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory.
As soon as I walked into the warmth of the conservatory I saw butterflies in the air, flying, resting, posing, sharing their beauty. I wandered, camera in hand, sometimes capturing photos, sometimes just standing and watching.

I think Claude Monet said this for me: "I must have flowers, always, and always.". That's how I feel right now - I need flowers and I need bright colors.
I headed to The Stevens-CoolidgePlace this morning to see the current selection of flowers in bloom. I found glory-of-the-snow, crocus, and daffodils scattered through the grass, then greenhouse-sheltered color pulled me inside for a few minutes to enjoy a bit of bright pink.

Lest we get complacent with warmer days, the weather wizard has gifted us with a little bit of snow this morning. It was just enough to remind us that while the calendar says it is spring, the season is lagging.
Brr... from warm temperatures early in the week we're back to the freezing mark once again.

I keep seeing these tiny blue and white flowers scattered about, in gardens, in the grass.
I went looking for a name and found that they are known as "glory-of-the-snow" (with a proper name of Chionodoxa). It's a flower that blooms early in the spring. So beautiful...
